Waste and Recycling
Householders' garden waste is collected from their Brown Bin, the waste is then
taken to Barr Environmental Ltd, outside Cumnock. The waste goes through various
treatments before it is turned into compost. The compost is then sold back to residents
of South-Ayrshire for £2.00 per 70L sack.
How the Scheme Works
Compost can be bought from two of our Community Recycling Centres at:
Ayr Recycling Centre, Old Farm Road, Heathfield
Sacks are purchased at the price of £2.00 per sack, the sack holds 70L and can be
used again and again. Each time you fill the sack it will cost £2.00. Please see
the attendant on site for sacks and vouchers.
Troon Recycling Centre - Port Ranald Drive, Troon
Sacks and Vouchers are purchased from Troon Housing Office, Municipal Buildings,
South Beach, Troon. Vouchers only can be purchased from Morrison's Filling Station,
Troon. The sack and the voucher is then taken to the Recycling Centre, please present
your voucher to the attendant before filling your sack.
